Purchase date : next week

Budget : ~1200

Usage : WCG games

Parts not required : need everything minus speakers

Country of origin : Japan I have an APO so newegg will ship here

Parts pref : newegg

Overclocking : yes

Sli / crossfire : maybe

Resolution : 1080 or 1200

Additional comments : So Ive been around the block a few times with building but Ive been home all of 10 days in 8 months so I'm nowhere up to date on new parts. I had to sell my last build before moving to japan since it was a too big of hassle to get it here and wasn't worth my time, so I'm looking at rebuilding. I am liking the 1090t however I see the SB being reccomended so please advise on that with WCG bionic In mind. 8gb seems like the best choice at the prices. Also, free shipping doesn't apply to me, weight does it's almost 100$ shipping just for a full Atx case.

Thanks for your time.

Sorry it would be to APO 96326 so you get the right pricing. Also I do not prefer a micro Atx or mini itx.

Those P67 boards aren't due here for another 3-4 weeks, but Asia has them. This build went over your budget a bit seeing how I didn't have room for a monitor, but this build is set up to add another one of those factory o/c gtx 560's for SLI. Windows 7, after market h/s, etc.. is also included.

That's expensive. I think that board went for $200 here before they pulled those boards.

The problem with smaller form factor is, first, dorm is small gonna have higher ambient temp with ocing. The ac isn't always on and the temp now stays at 75 - 78 add a system in this small of a room and watch it shoot up. Also, no celing fan. With this I believe a bigger case with more airflow is the smart idea. Is this correct? Im not specifically sold In reg Atx however this was my reasoning.
